Our CT scanning laboratory uses a GE Optima 520, 32-slice scanner with a 70-cm gantry bore. It is a 16 cm detector and is capable of 0.625 mm increment thin-slice scans. We have facilitated previous research projects involving both live and cadaveric animals, fossils, and non-living human cadaveric scans.
Some examples of past projects include scans involving:
- TMJ condylar prosthesis project utilizing cadaveric and live goat specimens
- Pathology identification of non-avian herbivorous dinosaur fossils
- Cadaveric skull to assess surgical intervention planning methodology for medical students
The MIRS R.T. faculty welcome inquiries to schedule scanning services and participation in your research!
